The Comic Speculator – New Comics Roundup 03/26/2014

Silver Surfer #1 (Francesco Francavilla Variant), 1:50 ($12-$15)

New Comics Roundup

It’s another huge week for comics and if you don’t know what you’re doing, you might end up running from your local comic shop screaming! Boy, you’re lucky I’m here for you and ignoring my wife while writing about comics. This week Crossed hits issue #50 at Avatar and Garth Ennis returns to do the honors. Spinning out of the pages of Dark Horse Presents, writer Frank Barbarie’s Blackout gets a new series. In The New 52 news, slim Amanda Waller gets her own one-shot and Sandman Overture #2 both hit at DC. G.I. Joe logs issue #200 and Rocky and Bullwinkle return to comics at IDW. Bryan Hitch’s Real Heroes launches at Image and, finally, Ghost Rider shows up this week, seriously, along with a new Iron Patriot and Silver Surfer series. Take a deep breath, don’t freak out, you’ve got this. Now, TO THE COMIC SHOP!

Below you will find all the info you could possibly need on all the hot, new comics shipping this Wednesday, March 26, including variant ratios, previews (click on the links), storyline and creator notes and a little speculation on what could be hard to find in the future. The ratios listed after titles (i.e. 1:10) represent how many issues of a regular cover retailers had to order to get the variant. The prices in parenthesizes after variant listings (i.e. $10-$15), are my suggested price points, based on ordering ratio and popularity, that you should look for if buying. Issues that are part of a crossover or storyline have an abbreviated title in parenthesis after the title comic (i.e. AvX). Be sure to let me know what you think of the format and remember to click on the links for previews. To find a comic shop near you, click here.

Abbreviations: AR - Ask Retailer (for price info); FOC – Final Order Cutoff date; GN – Graphic Novel; HC – Hardcover; RI – Retailer Incentive; SC – Soft Cover; SUB – Subscription Variant; TP – Trade Paperback; Vol. – Volume.
